Northampton Expansion for Kia Motors

Planning Permission for Bells KIA.

Bells Motor Group has appointed Morton Wykes Kramer to redesign their existing KIA showroom located on their Bedford Road, Northampton site.

Our design  will double the size of the existing showroom from 214m2 to 415m2 allowing for additional area for displaying cars, additional capacity for sales staff and further office accommodation.  The new building will take on the KIA corporate red box concept with red cladding across the parapet on the front elevation and to the flanks on the side elevation. The showroom will be modern and sustainable. It will incorporate electric car charging points and solar panel roof layouts.

We submitted our planning application in October 2014 and Bells receive the full planning permission in December.  Importantly for the clients we are pleased that our carefully considered planning application resulted in  no planning conditions. This is unusual for such a scheme but  was achieved by carefully taking advice and listening to the council throughout the design stage prior to submitting the application. We are now looking forward to putting our designs into reality during 2015.
